|Title||Wanted: Stop Motion Video Creators|
We all know from our own teaching experience that a deep level of understanding is essential for being able to explain concepts to our students. An effective way to assess to which extent a student masters a certain topic is therefore to ask him/her to explain it to his peers. In this project, students assumed the role of their teachers: they created explanation videos on topics from their own curriculum or other topics they are interested in (e.g. the Pythagorean Theorem for mathematics). The explanation videos were created using “Stop Motion” techniques. Stop Motion is an animation technique to make an object appear to move on its own. Before creating the videos, students created a storyboard, shared it with their peers and evaluated each other’s storyboards. They then used their storyboards to create the stop motion videos. At the end of the project, a compilation of all projects was posted on YouTube. Each school nominated its best video to compete for the ‘Best Stop Motion Video 2016’ award.
